A Brief History of Astrophysics

In the beginning was the black,
which was with God,
and the black was God.
The black held all and was all and created all,
and all was kept in its keeping.

After the blackness gave birth to everything else,
after the light was weaned,
and crawled from the cradle
and into the new world,
white light was claimed
to be the begininng and the measure of all things.
But it was not.
White light was claimed as life,
and darkness as death.
And the light continued to shine
because of the darkness.

And the black is the birth and the death
of all things, the alpha and the omega.
The darkness sees into the world
the light of all colours,
and defines them one by one.

All the colours, red to violet,
and also the white
which does not exist,
which is merely the absence of perception.

In the beginning was the black,
which was with God,
and the black was God.
